Handled error break hammers local storage

I am enccountering something that has been evolving from a simple annoyance to a problem that I will have to deal with.
I am working in Access 2007/accdb for clients (although I have 2010 32 bit on my home machine).
If my apps break on a handled error, it appears to hammer many, if not all, of my public variables and custom classes.
This is a PITA for me while developing, since I find that I have to close the app and then re-open it to reinitialize the objects. In production it means that a user should probably close and then re-open the app if they ever get an error message; which lacks grace.
I incorporate message handling in every subroutine and function except class modules, where I apply situational discretion as to how an error is handled. I have a public HandleError function that takes care of the paperwork.
My default is to have my errors break in class modules, which I enforce when I open the app with the following:

      Application.SetOption "Error Trapping", enmBreakInClassModules

Is this normal behavior? For some reason I don't recall this being as much of an issue in years past. My impression is that this is something that has come more to the fore in 2007 and 2010.

<<If my apps break on a handled error>>

  If you reset at that point (stop execution), everything clears.  That's no different then it always has been.

I think this is happening even if I don't do a reset; but, to be honest, I'm not sure (knowing myself, you've probably identified what it is I've been doing).
So...
I'm going to accept your answer, and keep your advice in mind. If my experience differs. I will revisit.
Thanks,
Todd

Todd,

  It should not be happening if you are not resetting.  Simply breaking execution is a pause (you have a breakpoint on the line, have told VBA to break, or have a STOP in the code).

  When your at a break, you can hit F8 to step through code line by line or F5 to simply continue.

  But if you do Run/Reset off the menbar or hit the Square on the toolbar, then your resetting executiona nd everything will clear.
